Now that you’ve mastered gardening basics, you want to enjoy your bounty year-round, right? Homegrown Pantry picks up where beginning gardening books leave off, with in-depth profiles of the 55 most popular crops — including beans, beets, squash, tomatoes, and much more — to keep your pantry stocked throughout the year. Each vegetable profile highlights how many plants to grow for a year’s worth of eating, and which storage methods work best for specific varieties. Author Barbara Pleasant culls tips from decades of her own gardening experience and from growers across North America to offer planting, care, and harvesting refreshers for every region and each vegetable. 

Whether selecting the right variety of pumpkin for pie filling or the best beets for easy pickling, Homegrown Pantry is the essential reference for planning a garden that produces the best varieties and the right amounts to stock the pantry and root cellar with a year-round supply of 55 favorite vegetables.

Baker & Taylor
Presents guidance on how to stock a pantry for year-round use, discussing fifty-five crops and how best to harvest and preserve them, including canning, pickling, and fermenting, and at what amounts.
